'Another valuable instalment in Howard's vast trek through Liszt's piano music' (Classic CD)

Ouvertüre aus der Oper Oberon von Carl Maria von Weber – Klavierpartitur von F. Liszt, S574
1825/6; Oberon, J306

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The transcription of the overture to Weber’s Oberon is, like that of the Freischütz Overture, a literal piano version of the original, but Liszt offers a number of passages in alternative pianistic garb which actually convey a better sense of the spirit of the orchestra—and this is among the most spirited of Weber’s pieces.
